Getting revoked PGP 6 key into GPG keyring

	I'm testing the interoperability between PGP 6 and GPG 

	I have a PGP 6 key for a user in my GPG keyring. So far I can use
it without any kind of problem (besides using --force-v3-sigs to
sign). But if I revoke the key in PGP, then export the revoked key (say,
to testpgp.asc), I cant get it into my GPG keyring: 

[jcouto@ursa jcouto]$ gpg --import testpgp.asc 
gpg: key 85E3E45A: revocation certificate added
gpg: key 85E3E45A: not changed
gpg: Total number processed: 1
gpg:              unchanged: 1

	It clearly says that it didnt change the key, and in effect, the
key is still valid in my ring.

	So far, the only way I have found to do it is by deleting the key
first and adding the revoked key later.

	Any ideas? Thanks in advance
